Children's Ministry

Sunday School is every Sunday at 9:30 in the Room 3 on the second floor of the education building.

We us Orange Curriculum's "252 Basics". Our September theme (which is about taking initiative) is called “Dirty Jobs".


Youth Group Hang Outs

We like to have fun and go deep at the same time! This past year we have looked at some of the evidence for Truth in the Bible and how we can share that with other people.

As we wrap up “The Box” video series by Propaganda, we will start to dive into Psalm 139 together. Bring a friend!

We have youth group hang outs on Sundays at 6:30 PM in our new youth room location on the north end of the office building.

Life Groups

Hope's mission of making disciples by sharing God's compassionate love is something we want our members to take into their homes. Life Groups are an awesome way to do that. These groups get together regularly for fellowship, study, and often times FOOD!

We currently have five life groups, four of which are based on location in Bradenton (Northeast, Southeast, Northwest, Southwest), and the fifth group which is the Young Adult group. If you are interested in connecting with a Life Group, please contact Cindy in the office at 941-755-3256 or 


Adult Education


Join us each Sunday at 9:30 in the east classroom on the 1st floor of our Education Building. Just follow the blue footprints leading from our sanctuary/worship center. Everyone is welcome!

Current series: Befriend (Scott Sauls)

Is real friendship too risky? We live in a world where real friendship is hard to find. Suspicious of others and insecure about ourselves, we retreat to the safety of our small, self-made digital worlds. Tragically, even the church can become a place that reinforces this isolation. Jesus models a much richer vision of friendship. Pastor and teacher Scott Sauls invites Christians to see the breadth of Christ’s love toward people we often avoid. In this 6-session series, Scott outlines principles for befriending those around us with the love of Jesus.

Yes, it’s true: Real friendship is costly. Love does make us vulnerable. But without risk, our lives will remain impoverished. Learn what it means to be a good friend in an age of judgment, isolation, and fear.

This is a six week study.
